Celestial objects come and go from the night sky Whether it’s the full moon, a meteor shower, or just the best night to see Mars, we’re here to turn your eyes to the sky and tell you that you should look up and appreciate the wonders of space from Earth

This week we ask you to marvel at the last full moon of the decade, which appears opposite the sun and shines the brightest in the night sky

The last full moon of 2020 marks the end of a decade and a pretty rough year, the last full moon of the year is also the unfortunate number 13 after seeing two full moons in October

The moon will appear on Tuesday the 29th December, at 2228 p.m. at the brightest east, but will be on 30 December still shine brightly

Outside of North America, however, the rest of the world will be on Sept. December at 03:28 UTC witnessed the brightness of the full moon

The full moon in December is known as the cold moon because it is the first of the winter season.It is also known as the Long Night Moon because it falls shortly after the winter solstice, which is characterized by shorter daylight times

Others refer to the full moon in December as the wolf moon, as wolves howl in the middle of the night during the cold season

The moon takes approximately 27 days to complete one orbit around the earth. During this time the moon begins with eight different phases

At the beginning of its cycle, the moon is on the same side of the earth as the sun, with its dark side facing our planet.As a result, it is almost invisible to us. Then gradually a small piece of the crescent moon appears in our sky while it becomes a full moon at the peak of its cycle, after which it begins to become invisible again, before beginning again 29.5 days after the previous new moon

Each of these phases is characterized by changes in the visibility, brightness and size of the moon

A full moon occurs when the earth is sandwiched between the sun and moon at exactly opposite ends and the side of the moon facing the earth is fully illuminated by the radiant sunlight
